BTS will celebrate its 10-year anniversary with fireworks, exhibitions and an RM-hosted special show.
Dubbed “BTS 10th Anniversary Festa @ Yeouido,” the anniversary festival on June 17 acts as the main show of the boy band’s 10th-anniversary events, which lasts from June 12 to June 25, according to the boy band’s agency BigHit Music on Thursday.
The two key events on June 17 will be “It’s 5PM, and This is Kim Namjun,” a one-off special program hosted by member RM (whose real name is Kim Nam-jun) interacting with the fans in the festival, and a fireworks show at 8:30 p.m., which will feature Jungkook’s narration and the band’s music. Both events will be livestreamed on Weverse and TikTok.
RM’s program will be held at the ARMY lounge, where only ARMY fan club membership holders who won the raffle can enter. The lounge will include photo booths for the fans to enjoy.
The events announced so far include a special exhibition titled “10 Years of BTS,” which will showcase the band’s achievements and another display that will show the boy band’s “Run BTS” stage outfit during its “Yet to Come” Busan concert.
A 10th-year anniversary monument, a temporary tattoo booth and more will be open throughout the Yeouido Hangang Park from noon to 10 p.m. on June 17.
These events will be open to the public.
The 10th-anniversary event kicks off next Monday with Seoul’s major landmarks, including Some Sevit, N Seoul Tower, Seoul City Hall, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, and three bridges in Han River turning purple — the boy band’s signature color.
More events will be revealed throughout the week, including the release of a digital single “Take Two” on Friday.
